Nerdphanie does fashion week

  1. Mods, I don't know if this is allowed, but please indulge me. Fashion week has been taking over my life and I'd like to share some of my commentary with everyone!

    From the Shopping Nerd on 2/4:

    So it's been two days so far, and there have been some great shows. But let's take a moment to reflect on some of the more laughable highlights, courtesy of style.com:

    Nip slips at Douglas Hannant! I found his show to be rather boring, but hey, at least we got to see some skin. The man does not know how to dress and flatter a woman's breasts. This inability is more or less clear even when he manages to maintain coverage.

    Maybe he should've borrowed some of these from Alexander Wang. These models don't have to worry about clothes to keep their bits wrapped because they've got bras that look like angry houseflies. Do you see the face? Anyway, what is going on with these? Isn't Alexander Wang like, a maestro of knitwear? Why the crazy bra action? And why pair crazy bras with what looks like monkey fur and leather cropped pants?

    Dear Alexandre Herchcovitch, Mugatu is going to be PISSED when he sees this. Points for the straw hats, though.

    Now, from Toni Maticevski, this is by far the craziest thing I've seen this week. This type of thing got a pass in the Project Runway challenge where they had to make outfits in six hours using only the materials available in their apartments. Remember that sporty girl used a comforter and called it a long coat? Well she got booted pretty early, so I don't think it's advisable to take a page from her book. Especially not that page. The lemon-colored affair is, I'm fairly certain, a sleeping bag. Maybe two sleeping bags. The pink one is at least interesting and kind of...pretty. I have no idea where her arms are, and the whole thing reeks a little of bondage, but the draping is actually pretty nice and the shape is, again, interesting. Still, why use blankets when you have real fabric?
    God I love fashion week.

  12. Obligatory 3.1 Phillip Lim post

    I was so excited for the Phillip Lim show, and thankfully, it was a good show. I don't know that I prefer the A/W to the S/S, but the looks were signature Lim with relaxed silhouettes and a big helping of awesome. Prepare for a photo overload, courtesy of nymag.com.

    I love this look - loose shift tunic layered over a long-sleeved blouse with tights. The simple sleeves and the loose shape look so effortless and easy. Pockets magnify that effect. I love the camel with ivory and the grey with red, and of course black is classic. As shown, this look can be belted, though I prefer the smooth flow of the tunics sans cinching.

    What is an A/W show without a barrage of enviable coats? Nothing, I tell you, nothing. I want ALL OF THEM. Have to love the loose trench quality of the first one, and then the sweet slim dress quality of the second. Then you have built-in scarves on a cute cropped coat and a luscious double-breasted.

    Lighter-than-air dresses are a Phillip Lim staple, even for the cold. I can't argue. His virginal whites from the S/S show have given way to muted peach and beautiful dove grey, but these dresses are unmistakably Lim. I love what he's done with his collars, and the breezy shapes make me want to put one on and go twirling.

    Every show has its quirky stuff. It is fashion, after all. Lim's quirk came in the form of clown-magician-inspired menswear. Really though, it's pretty cute. If you take away the bow ties and the top hats, you have some very wearable pieces. I love that black coat and that vest-blouse combo. The pants are a little baggy for my taste, but they look cool on the models.

    Last set of pictures - there's no real theme here, but I really love these looks. Especially that shiny jacket and dress combo. Sigh, having some serious fashionlust.
